Good evening everyone, We realise we've become a little slack with our 'Tech Insights' over the last few months, after lock down was lifted and we returned to the workshop, we a had a rather large workload to get through so the Tech Insights unfortunately took a back seat. They always got good feedback so I thought we best pull our finger out and get another one up for you all! A question we still receive on a regular basis is how E85 maps/Flex Fuel work, what's needed for it and what are the benefits; naturally this prompted this article....

This week's Tech Insight focuses on a term that you may (or may not!) have heard used before when it comes to calibrating an engine. MBT is an important aspect of engine calibration as it is directly related to the torque the engine produces and how safely at your chosen ignition advance. To get a better understanding of MBT, we should first start with a recap on the fundamentals of the spark delivery on a 4-stroke engine. The term ‘ignition timing’ / ‘ignition advance’ / ‘ignition angle’ refers to the point in the engine cycle at which the spark event...

Welcome back to part 2 of our sequential gearbox 'tech insight'. You may remember that we classified our previous article as an entry level closed-loop implementation; this does mean you can take the process one step further. The extra step you can take is by removing the manually actuated shifting mechanism and moving to a paddle shift setup.The previous article focused mostly on the Syvecs system; this article will focus mostly on Cosworth’s implementation as it is the one I am most familiar with. If Romain was writing this it would be the other way round!A paddle shift setup has...

Welcome back to Volume 2 of our Tech Insight series! We hope you enjoyed our first article which gave an overview of how basic maths channels are used in the motorsport world; if you missed it feel free to check out the article and let us know what you think here: Our second Tech Insight is going to revolve around sequential gearbox control and the appropriate systems you need in place to do this correctly and safely. This article will be predominantly based on how we do this with a Syvecs ECU, however the theory can be utilised on...
